Microsoft is expanding its Office 365 portfolio with a new service called Office 365 Video that allows companies to upload and share videos internally. The feature facilitates easy sharing of multimedia over a company's intranet, negating the need for file transfers. Introduced last November, the service is now being rolled out globally.
Microsoft describes Office 365 Video thusly:
Office 365 Video is an intranet website portal where people in your organization can post and view videos. It's a streaming video service for your organization that's available with SharePoint Online in Office 365. It's a great place to share videos of executive communications or recordings of classes, meetings, presentations, or training sessions, for example. Office 365 Video displays a thumbnail image of each video on the site. You just select a thumbnail to view a particular video.
Like YouTube, content on Office 365 Video is broken down into channels. The service comes with a default channel called Community, to which all subscribed users can upload videos. IT admins will be able to manage permissions for specific channels via Active Directory. All uploaded videos will be available in several resolutions, allowing those on lower bandwidth to also stream the content with ease. Playback support is available for all major desktop and mobile platforms through an HTML5-based player.
Currently, there's a native app for Office 365 Video on iOS, with other platforms set to receive native clients in the near future. The service is available to Office 365 Enterprise and Academic plan subscribers, and will shortly roll out for Government plan subscribers.
